About the Living and Learning for Sustainability series:

Open Living and Learning for Sustainability:
Community Based Sustainability Education and Certification

The Lunch and Learn for Sustainability Series is part of the Sustainability Certification program offered through the Adena Center for Sustainability, Communications and Transformational Change. The events were hosted at Webster University.

In the spirit of the Open Living and Learning Network, we welcome participant dialogue on the practical issues and deeper concerns facing individuals, businesses and neighborhoods in "going green." By conceiving of the "community as campus" and combining seminar and experiential opportunities with neighborhood, university and business led expertise, the Network supports ongoing learning in a variety of venues.

Upcoming seminars will cover a variety of topics, including Green and Sustainable Building, Transportation, Neighborhoods, Business, Logistics, Finance, Food, Communications,, Global Networking, Planning, Organizing, Energy, Water, Labor, Education, Research, Science and more.

Participants are welcome to bring projects and ideas for consideration in this and future workshops in the series. Community based research, learning and action networks ar one of the ways we can create community solutions to the opportunities of the transition.to sustainability.

The Open Living and Learning Network continues and expands the work of previous Adena and Sustainable Louisville community dialogues in significant ways.

Some of the earlier and ongoing dialogues include:

The Imagine Louisville / Bioneers conferences and workshops
The Urban Ecovillage and Sustainable Business forums co-hosted with the Urban Design Studio
